rdsh (9) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2011 does not count
Refreshing golden ale, with a floral bouquet and strong, bitter and very hoppy finish. If you like Dark Star Hophead then you’ll like this.

Cask at the King Charles I, London on 2nd Sept 2010. Gold with a white foamy head. Deliciously hoppy with grapefruit the leading taste element here, with a long-lasting hoppy finish, and a light to zingy mouthfeel

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Cask gravity, Tamworth BF 2011, 09/09/11. Jeepers. Nose a neat resinous burst of hop juice; ladies’ armpit, grapefruits, citrus peels, jazz cigarettes. That’s pushing 9. Pale yellow with a fringe of bubbles collapsing fast. Sings like a single hop Mikkeller. Didn’t realise Amarillo could be so pungent; taste all bitter citrus peels peppered with sherbet, swish of greenery, blunt bitter finish. Bone dry, whipped clean. A gnaw of biscuit follows, with some peanut husk. Which is all you want. Pretty sexy. Easily Beer of The Festival So Far.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Old Fountain London. A blonde gold coloured beer with a good white head and lacing. Really good lemony Amarillo hops throughout this. Hints of grass. Malts are superbly balancing. Effortlessly drinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2012
On cask at the Bow Bar Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, caramel and alcohol. Similar resinous hop flavours with mild carbonation. Nice.

Garrold (5442) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
Cask. Shakespeare’s, Sheffield. Clear, straw colour. Bubbly, white head. Beautifully fresh, Amarillo hop, with a clean, grainy malt. That’s it. Nowt left to say.

JorgeLee (2169) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Cask, Old Coffee House. Golden colour, white head, good lacing. Clearly hop dominant, fruity Amarillo citrus orange hint of something sharper, hint of something more tropical. Slightly oily mouthfeel, hint of resin, then long dry bitter finish. Superb, a lovely reminder of how good 4% beer on cask can and should be.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask from the GBBF upstairs staff bar.
Big grapefruit and citric Amarillo all round. Hugely drinkable, lovely and dry on the palate. Just really fruity and interesting if only for the luscious hoppage. Fantastic legnthy bitterness. Brilliant bright gold looks with a thin but lasting white head and very good condition. The bitterness lasts for ages. Great stuff.

3.8
yespr (46805) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2010
From cask. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild citrusy and peachy. Crisp hoppy. Smooth fruity, peaches and mild citrusy flavoured. Lingering peachy and crisp bitter finish.
